CC173 Annie LaPoint - Lavender



Happy Day!!! Can you believe today is July, 1st???

Four more weeks and my girls will go back to school - YAAAHHOOOO!!!
Just kidding - I enjoy having them home.....

Today's Color Challenge #173 is Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery - it's so beautiful!!! Don't you think so???

My dear friend Denise aka *peanutebee* was so nice to mail me a couple of these beautiful new Annie LaPoint stamped Samples. Thank you Denise - I love them!!!

When I saw today's challenge I knew I could work with this image right away. I have colored it with flower part, flower pot with Purely Pomegranate, the stems with Wild Wasabi and the *dotted* area with Certainly Celery I have also used the Crystal Effect on the *dotted* area - it looks awesome!!!

I have started out with Whisper White as by base. Then I have layered it with Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White CS again. Next I have place the image on a Purely Pomegranate Nestie and raised it with Stampin Dimensionals. Before I have added the image I've tied the gorgeous PP Satin Ribbon to it. To finish is it all off I have added the Pewter Jumbo Eyelets with Rhinestones to it. Voila!!!

Hope you like it and ~TFL~!!!

Love this card! I especially like how you interpreted the color challenge. I was dreading trying to put those colors together and not have it automatically look like a Christmas card. Your card is beautiful and I may have to CASE it! Thanks so much for the wonderful blog you do!
